I sincerely hope Steve King got a decent deal with Southend United for Noor, who we sorely missed today.
If not, and the deal was brokered by the old guard, then John Still has probably got him for next to nothing.
If that's the case, then don't be surprised if SK moves on to pastures new next season.

If that happens we are f*cked. King is one of the best managers at this level, now is the time to back him (both club and fans). If we lose King then we can forget about any kind of promotion anytime soon

Very frustrating , we were simply not good enough.
Relying on one man to score the goals.
The midfield outplayed and 2 poor goals conceded.
We are looking more and more like a mid table team.

H&R were quicker than us and wanted it more imo played the better football.
Whatever happened to the team that started the season because consistency has gone out of the window.with this team imo.

Was feeling very positive at half time but the 2nd half was a terrible performance. All we can do is move on to Tuesday night

Well done to medics/physios and anyone who helped with the medical emergency. These incidents are becoming quite common but I'm glad to hear the person is ok.

Little foray onto the H&R forum unearthed the following comments:

- Dartford were a bit ordinary and mystifyingly slow in the second half.
- Stonewall penalty on 88 minutes (I was very relieved to see the ref wave play on).
- Some of their supporters were shouted and sworn at when leaving by a small group of ours.

We need to win on Tuesday, but thank goodness we didn’t lose yesterday!

First half we looked good going forward and although Hampton were threatening on the break the game should have been over at HT but the missed chances cost us dearly.
Glorious chance again at the star of the 2nd half to go 3-1 up but after that Hampton had the better of the half, our 2nd half performance was not good.

The goals we conceded looked poor so interested to see the highlights, also a few big decisions i'd like to see again.

Ref got worse as the game went on, bit like us unfortunately.

Obviously losing Noor is a big loss but it's always a possibility something like that will happen.
For me the club should already have announced they are using Noors transfer fee to back Steve in signing a couple of new players, we need to act now as there's no point having this money in the bank as a couple of new faces could help kick start us again.

There were some key moments in the game yesterday where we could have put the game to bed:

1) Shortly before H & R got their first goal one of our players decided to allow the ball to bounce instead of heading it away from a dangerous area, this was straight after Danny, Kalvin & Kieran had opportunities to double the lead.
2) The cutback from Luke Allen to Danny should have resulted in a goal, to me, it looked like it was already goal-bound before Ade made sure. Then the flag went up!
3) The penalty looked very soft but then again, I was a long way from the action. Maybe there was no need to go in so heavy-handed with the challenge.
4) The point-blank shot from Tom has to go in. I know that he will be disappointed with that effort and he really should have put his boot throught the ball instead of trying to place the ball into the net.

In short, some big decisions/missed opportunities cost us 2 points on the day. SK really wanted to talk about the officials on Radio Kent but was wise to bite his tongue but I can feel his frustration as their decisions made a massive impact on the game. He sounded dejected but I feel that some of our players let him down big time and owe him a glass of sherry with a cocktail cherry on top. I agree with PL's comments on the Noor saga and SK must be allowed to spend any available transfer money to boost our squad.

Also very disappointing to hear DA Mikey's comments on the verbal abuse, this is unacceptable.

The Hampton performance made it a very enjoyable game to watch. It showed us how predictable we are and how our drop in the table is not a surprise. Yes, we have lost Noor, but were we really reliant on his game? It's looks as though we were.
I enjoyed watching H&R. Young and very fast and unlucky not to have won. No amount of players in their team showed electrifying speed with/and without the ball. Crikey, we could have done with a few of them. 14,21,8 and 16 stood out, even the subs frightened us with their speed.
We looked tired and the midfield?? as KST stated, the emergency crew were faster.
A poor show and Kingy sounded disappointed in the performance and overall to me.
My MOTM, their numbers 14, 21, 8, and 16

Based on Kingys comments on Radio Kent it seems at last the penny has dropped and a number of his squad are not [currently] up to the standard and either need a loan to get their [ scoring] confidence back or shown the exit door - his decision !! . Add to this the Husin money to go out and get at least 3 quality players [ incl another1/2 strikers] which will give both the team and the fans the boost that is needed

As a fan I want to see positive action taken [ even IF we fall short] rather than hear that we are the unluckiest team in the league as the Ref gives us f... all , wrong offside decisions and players who [ continually] cant score from 4 yards out !!!

Over to you Mr King !!!!!!!!!!!!!
